Jewish Museum of Florida – FIU

Opened to the public in 1995 and directed by Marcia Jo Zerivitz.

Thanks to its historic partnership with the Florida International University, the Jewish Museum of Florida is a platform for education and research on the history of the Jewish culture and influences in Florida.

Its mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the material evidence of the first Jewish allowed to settle in 1763 up to the present through a rich programme of exhibitions, events open to the public and a collection of archival materials.
